Mudra: Chaturmukham Mudra - Gesture of Four Faces
Oh, Time, you strange relative measurement of life. I do not know where October went. Luckily, Facebook and Google Photos can let me know what I've done this month and hopefully some of it will be related to this card spread. And if it isn't, I can forgive myself. I haven't even learned my mudra for October. And I definitely didn't do a boat pose. Oh, wait... I did do this mudra this month.
Let me refresh my memory...
October 31: Last day of teaching my first class on campus at SWIHA - it was an 8 week course, one day a week.
October 30: mailed in my early voting ballot
October 28: 9.3 mile Fall Colors hike in Sedona.
October 25: Revising orientation at work
October 25: Mindful Meditation at SOY: Turning walls into Connection
October 15, 16, 19, 21, 23: Coached Yoga Practicums at SOY
October 21: Holistic Health Gathering at work
October 17: started 10-day movie challenge on FB and changed the instructions so that I could take as long as I wanted and not feel like I was losing at Facebook.
October 12-24: working on Sacral Chakra quilt
October 12: started moving into new office at work
October 5: witnessed the birth of a grand-nephew
October 2, 13: rained so much from the remnants of a hurricane that we ended up having wettest October on record.
While I did not actually do boat pose this month, I did imagine doing boat pose several times. And for me boat pose is about the solar plexus chakra, the power center, the core, and it is also about lifting the heart. This month's mudra is also about the solar plexus. This ball of energy is held in front of the abdomen.
And Midas - entrepreneurship and creativity. Well, I definitely tapped into my creativity this month through photography of the fall colors hike and quilting the sacral chakra.
I think there's more for me here and I trust that I'll have the opportunity to continue working on my solar plexus chakra and my entrepreneurial and creative abilities.

After burning out from a long career as a middle school/high school reading/math/science teacher, I returned to school to study massage, hypnotherapy, mindfulness, aromatherapy, and yoga.
